Hi Admissionado, I'd be extremely appreciative if you could evaluate my chances at the following schools: Stern, Columbia, Wharton. Thanks in advance!

GRE: Quant 164 (90 percentile); Verbal: 165 (95%), Written 4.5 (73%)
School: Queen's University (Canada's Dartmouth), 3.4/4.3 GPA
Volunteering: 2005 - youth mentoring program (Cape Town, South Africa townships); 2009 - member of local charity campaign; 2012 - created voluntary cross-entity research group at work
Work: 5 years experience at major Canadian financial firm; no promotions (flat organizational structure), but steady salary raises; I've been afforded a lot of responsibility/privilege for someone my age; strong recommendations (however neither is from a director or managing director).
Essays: Should be strong - I have a unique and (very biased, but I believe) compelling story why I want to get my MBA.
Other: Well-rounded extracurriculars; I'm a white Canadian guy that works in finance - this doesn't help!

Hey burke,
Well your GRE is excellent (the equivalent of a 730 I believe) so you are off to a good start there. The Undergrad GPA is a bit low, which is something you will have to fight against a bit. But that's also all right.

For your work experience, I honestly have a hard time evaluating and I think I would need to get into detail with you. Because 5 years doing one thing in one organization with no promotions. Okay, it could be great.. or it could be less great. Plus I don't yet have a sense of the importance of your responsibilities, and if I got a better feel for that, then I may be able to advise you better.

so feel free to elaborate more here, or better yet, drop us a line direct with your resume and all, and that may make things easier to evaluate: info@admissionado.com
